Vulnerability Assessment Details

Reading CGI script sources using /cgi-bin-sdb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of /cgi-bin-sdb/

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The directory /cgi-bin-sdb is an Alias of
/cgi-bin - most SuSE systems are configured that
way.

This setting permits a possible hacker to obtain the source
code of the installed CGI scripts on this host. This is
dangerous as it gives a possible hacker valuable information
about the setup of this host, or perhaps usernames and
passwords if they are hardcoded into the CGI scripts.

Solution : In httpd.conf, change the directive:
Alias /cgi-bin-sdb/ /usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/
to
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin-sdb/ /usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/
Network Security Threat Level: High
